When it comes to cooking – some of us have it and some of us don’t. And I think that one of the more talented races in this area are the Italians. They just have a wonderful attitude to food. Unlike many of us in countries like the US of A and Australia where I currently reside, they do not make food their enemy.
On Saturday I was invited out for dinner at a friend’s house . She had organized a wonderful evening of Wine Women and Food. Well what fun we had. Mim, our Italian chefess if there is such a word, runs ‘a Cooking For Beginners’ course – which takes place in your own home. Her recipes were simple and so tasty. Mim has spent her life time cooking and I plan to do a post on her soon so do come back to find out more about her.
I am a vegetarian, and she even managed to come up with some wonderful tasty treats for me too!
For an entree she treated us to Zucchini Cakes on a bed of rocket with shaved Parmesan and so easy to make!
Unfortunately by the time I’d thought to do a blog post about it – well I’d eaten them!
However the brain must have still been partly engaged because here is a photo of the main course….
How beautifully presented is that? The colour, the textures – not to mention the tastes – Wonderful!
I have taken the liberty of changing the name of her dish from Eggplant Bake to Eggplant Delicious – because it truly was.and the rice you see there – what a wonderful combination of flavours;curry,lemon rind, macadamia nuts to name a few.
If you live on the Central Coast and want to have a wonderful evening with your girlfriends – give MIM a call – Ph. 43852837
